Tonight we celebrated my birthday. Counting children, we had a total of 13 people in the house. Thankfully the adults out numbered the kids. It was a noisy but fun evening. My mom made one of my favorite dinners--per my request--Sloppy Joes. It's a variation of two recipes. One of my aunt's made the beef barbecue recipe with chuck roast. My Grandma used hamburger instead since it was cheaper. I am sure it good either way. Here it is with hamburger.
2 pounds ground beef 1 small onion, chopped 1 (8 ounce) can of tomato sauce 3 Tablespoons of brown sugar 1/2 cup of ketchup 3 Tablespoons of flour 1 teaspoon of dry mustard 2 tablespoons of vinegar 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
Brown ground beef with onion until crumbly. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Bake at 350* for one hour, uncovered, stirring every 15 minutes. Serve hot in or over hamburger buns.
Pictures of the party will be posted later. I let my daughter take the pictures.
